Diabetes FAQs

What are the first signs of being a diabetic?

If you’re awaiting a diagnosis and planning ahead for potential diabetes care, it’s important to know which symptoms to look out for. 

Early symptoms of diabetes often include:

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Increased urination
  • Excessive thirst and a dry mouth
  • Fatigue

You may also experience increased hunger, blurred vision and even a numb or tingling sensation in your feet. These symptoms can cause discomfort and distract you from your daily routine. 

Speak to your healthcare professionals to confirm the type of diabetes you have before getting in touch with our team in Enfield to discuss a diabetes care plan.

Read our guide to Health Awareness, to help you spot any warning signs early.

Can you live a normal life with diabetes?

Many Clients and loved ones across Enfield approach our specialist team to ask: ‘how does diabetes affect a person’s life?’. 

people can live an entirely normal life whilst managing their diabetes. Though, as with any diagnosis, everyone responds to the condition slightly differently.

For many people with diabetes, management can be simple. Making careful food choices and maintaining a consistent diet and exercise routine go a long way. 

We recognise that a “normal life” may look different for everyone. That’s why our Enfield-based team of Carers work closely with all Clients to define a tailored care plan.

The impact of diabetes on a person’s life can vary dramatically.
